You need to know, that translation phrases are stored in **".po"** files (for example: `locale/pl_PL.utf8/LC_MESSAGES/pl_PL.utf8.po`), which are then complied in **".mo"** files using **msgfmt** gettext tool or by Poedit, which will run msgfmt for you in background.

Please simple create appropriate directories in locale folder and perform all steps, described above. Instead of opening an existing file just create new one.
##To create new translation
You just have to copy the folder corresponding to the language you want to translate from, change language in the project settings and for the folder and files names. Then start replacing all existing translations with your own.
